    Great work Jem.. still going strong champion.. 
    On the up side i have hit double figures this week.. yay
    on the down side ive had 2 hospital admissions in the last two weeks for the surgical removal of a kidney stone. Emergency dept doctor didnt think it was related to my sleeve surgery but the urologist does (a rare complication)... so im not sure.. maybe i got complacent with my fluid intake.. anyway all good now 
    I'm down 24kg in 11 weeks.
    Keep up the good work

    Good luck MGL on your op next week. Not long now. The time goes fast.. Looking from the other side anyway.I'm 3 weeks postop now and all clear sailing. 15kg in five weeks.

    Good job Ash. Remember that one of the main roles of the liver is to basically convert carbs into glycogen and store it. Each part of glycogen is hydrated with 4 parts of water. This means that a gram of glycogen stored in the liver weighs 5 grams. On the opti/carb free veg pre op diet your body is forced to use this stored liver glycogen as energy in place of our normal high carb intake. You wont make a big difference with the fattyness of your liver on the diet for two weeks.. Most of the liver shrinkage comes from depleting its glycogen stores. Each gram of glycogen your body uses for energy shrinks the liver by 5 grams. This is my interpretation anyway. Just stick to your opti and free veges and you'll do great in two weeks. Dont worry.. Just be strong..
    Good luck

    Hi MissAsh,
    I seriously felt EXACTLY the same. I've been dieting in many forms for 30years and never stuck to any of them. i was shit scared on how i was going to stick to the opti. i really did find that i lost most of my appetite after the first 3 days once your ketones kick in and switch off your hunger hormone ghrelin. That what i found anyway.
    Just take each day, 1 day at a time..
    If i can do this Ash anyone can. im not saying itll be easy but its doable.
    Just keep reminding yourself about how important this is for your operation.
    good luck beautiful
